I consider myself a fighter, dreamer who never gives up on her goals. I will not stop trying until I accomplish what I want.

Arlenys, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?

I begin as a model back in New York when I enrolled in a modelling school, and on the way, many opportunities for fashion shows and beauty pageants came my way. Although my aspirations were always to become an actress, modelling became an important part of my life because it helped me find my strengths, and confidence as a woman.

Who is your inspiration in life Arlenys? How do you keep inspired?

My inspiration is any person who is now successful and realised their dreams because no matter the challenges they faced on the way they never gave up, and they are at the top now because of their courage, and determination. For me every day is precious, faith is my main key to stay motivated and inspired.

We all make mistakes Arlenys; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.

The very first fashion show I ever produced and directed in LA I wished I had had more time to promote the show and have a massive audience to see the amazing designs by a dear friend of mine who collaboratively design them for my show

Arlenys, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?

I stay focused on what my clients want, I outline a brainstorm of ideas of ways to help me meets their needs and talk with them about it to make sure we are all on the same page

Please tell us Arlenys, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?

Producing and directing my first fashion show I was the engineer gathering a 33 crew member and losing models on the day of the show I had to model and grab people of my crew to model to make the show happened. Losing people the day off was when I knew how quickly I am to act and find solutions to problems under pressure

Arlenys, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

In order to have my school support my vision I had to paint a whole painting from scratch with details, but of course, that super Arly sparks to be able to make them see how great of a fashion show this would be. In the end, I had the school backing me up with anything I needed for the show

Arlenys, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?

The very last beauty pageant that I participated I won the part of the best answer of the primary questions of the competition. It was the moment where I felt that I had proven to anyone who doubted models as being smart and wise I had proven them wrong. I felt that I had accomplished an important goal in my life

Arlenys, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

Again it comes back to the fashion show I produced and directed losing member on the day of and having to act smart and quick was the most challenging experience but at the end hearing how proud everyone was of a successful and exciting event made me feel finally accomplished.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Model?

Never give, have faith that what you can’t see now will one day become a reality. Love your dreams more than anything in this world, embrace the challenges and failures and learn from them
